Tuesday, 17 December 2013
Bulgarian-based automobile manufacturer Litex Motors, in partnership with China's Great Wall Motors, shipped its first batch of 75 sport utility vehicles (SUV) to the EU market on Monday.
Nine transporter trucks with the Great Wall H6 model manufactured in the plant near Lovech, in northern Bulgaria, have set off to Italy, Litex Motors said.
Production of the Great Wall H6 model in the Bulgarian plant began in November.
In 2012, Litex Motors sold nearly 1,500 new Great Wall vehicles, including 100 in neighbouring Macedonia, the company said earlier.
The Litex Motors plant, which employs 200 people, opened officially in February 2012.
